Atletico Madrid make loan offer for Marseille’s Jonathan Clauss

L’Équipe are reporting that Atletico Madrid have made a loan offer for Olympique de Marseille right-back Jonathan Clauss, although the bid has little chance of being accepted. 

Clauss only join Marseille back in the summer from RC Lens. The move marked a meteoric rise for the defender, with the Frenchman also being called up by Didier Deschamps. However, despite making his Les Bleus debut back in 2022, he ultimately didn’t make Deschamps’ World Cup squad in what was a surprise omission. He was a victim of Deschamps’ decision to revert back to a defensively-oriented back four. 

However, Clauss continues to excel for the club, and at wing-back, has been one the standout players in a strong Marseille side that are currently third in Ligue 1. His performances have caught the eye of Atletico Madrid, who have made a loan offer with an option to buy for €9m at the end of the season.

This offer is unlikely to receive a positive response from the La Liga club’s point of view. The player only arrived in the summer and has a contract that runs until 2025, and all parties are currently satisfied with how things are going.
